DateThursday 25th April 2019
DescriptionThree luxurious works - a ballet, opera and symphonic rhapsody - showing the many sides of Ravel, but each inspired by his love of Spanish culture. An authority on Ravel, Francois-Xavier Roth transports you to the Basque country of the composer's childhood, with three works that fuse luscious French orchestration and lilting Spanish rhythms. Mysterious melodies weave delicately throughout Ravel's early work Rapsodie espagnole, punctuated by bursts of Spanish-inspired fanfares and Habanera dance rhythms. The fascination with his Spanish heritage would be a recurring theme in many of Ravel's creations, from the one-act opera L'Heure espagnole, a romantic intrigue set in 18th-century Spain, to his most popular work, Bolero. Originally a ballet, the simplicity of the delicate opening flute and insistent marching drums make it one of classical music's most familiar masterpieces.
